Inside, you step into a traditional layout of two front rooms separated by a foyer. But tradition ends there. A library with four chairs replaces a formal living room, and the entire family plays games there. A guest suite replaces the dining room. Nikki and Matt also did away with a formal front staircase. “It takes up too much room.” The staircase is toward the back of the house, with a tiny office for Nikki tucked underneath. A beechwood screen provides both a sliding door and unique design element. Furnishings throughout are a mixture of vintage midcentury and modern pieces by Ligne Roset and others. Colors are a warm gray neutral with brass accents and pops of peacock blue and lime green, inspired by a graphic print from Maharam accent pillows in the family room.
